  • Hydromechanical analysis in geotechnical engineering using the Material Point Method 

    Zabala García, Francisco; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics en Enginyeria (CIMNE), 2011)
    Conference report

    The explicit version of the Material Point Method has been extended in order to model coupled hydromechanical saturated problems. MPM discretizes the continuum, which is considered as a saturated soilfluid mixture, by ...
  • Modelación de problemas geotécnicos hidromecánicos utilizando el método del punto material 

    Zabala García, Francisco (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2010-10-28)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    En esta tesis se trata de la adaptación del Método del Punto Material al análisis de problemas geotécnicos incluyendo el comportamiento hidromecánico de materiales en condición saturada. El Método del Punto Material ó MPM ...
  • Progressive failure of Aznalcóllar dam using the Material Point Method 

    Zabala García, Francisco; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (2011-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The material point method, which combines features of finite-element and particle discretisation methods, has been extended to solve coupled flow-deformation problems in granular media. The method is applied to simulate ...
  • The Material Point Method and the analysis of dams and dam failures 

    Zabala García, Francisco; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (CRC Press, 2012)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper describes the application of the Material Point Method to the simulation of an earthdam failure case and the evaluation of the seismic response of concrete-faced dams. Results for the historical failure case of ...
